The government’s myGov website has had a facelift to make it easier to log in to government services online and there’s more to come, with busy work underway for the first myGov app.
As of today, the myGov website has changed color from green to blue, as part of a wider upgrade.
The upgrade to myGov Online includes a different layout, which will make it easier for users to see their inbox messages and related services from their home page when they log in.
The Minister for Government Services, the Hon Bill Shorten MP, said the updates were the precursor to a new myGov app which will soon be delivered.
“The myGov online portal is Australia’s largest authenticated platform, with over 25 million active accounts linked and an average of one million logins per day,” said Minister Shorten.
“The pandemic has shown us the importance of having great connections to government services online and these upgrades will immediately give Australians more options when using the site.
“The updated myGov website is just the start, however. We want Australia’s online government services to be the best in the world and the app, which will be available soon, will further improve and simplify the user experience.
“The latest updates to the myGov website mean it has the flexibility to adapt to meet people’s information needs and preferences in the future.
“Users will also be connected to services based on particular life events. Initial topics include parenting, changes in living conditions, aging, work, education, and health and disability, with more topics and information to be added soon.
“People will find myGov where it has always been my.gov.ausaid Minister Shorten.
“They don’t need to create a new account, download anything, or configure anything. People can use their current information to log in securely, and all of their personal information and related services will be there.
“Improving myGov will be an ongoing process and there is more to come, but for people who choose to use the services online, these initial changes will help make using myGov a better experience.”
